Karan Johar’s video from his grand house party landed the filmmaker in a lot of trouble and had evoked a lot of reactions right from politicians to actors. The video, that featured the who’s who of Bollywood included Deepika Padukone, Ranbir Singh, Shahid Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Malaika Arora, Arjun Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal and politico Milind Deora’s producer wife, Pooja Shetty Deora. A while ago, Akali Dal spokesperson Manjinder Sirsa shared the video and alleged the stars to have been in a drugged state. Now the filmmaker has come out and spoken about it and has dismissed all allegations.
In a recent interview with Rajeev Masand, Karan Johar rubbished all the claims by MLA Manjinder Sirsa. He said, “There were achieving members of the industry who were having an easy night out after a hard week of work, having a good time. I took that video with all the earnestness... would I be putting out that video if there was anything happening at all, I am not stupid." He aldo addressed the accusations on Vicky Kaushal for using powder and shared that he was recovering from dengue and was drinking hot water and lemon. He shared, "Apparently you are not allowed to scratch your nose. Apparently, you are not allowed to put your phone in your back pocket. Apparently, a shadow of light is perceived to be some kind of powder." He also mentioned that his mother was present at the party. "My mother, 5 minutes before this video, was sitting with us. It was that kind of a family, happy, social gathering, where friends were sitting and having a good time and we were listening to some music, having some good food and having good conversational energy there. There was nothing else going on."
While Karan Johar did think about reacting to the claims earlier, he later decided not to react at all. He said, “I don’t react very well to these baseless accusations because that’s what they were, baseless." He also added, "I told them also... I am not taking this very kindly, the next time where baseless accusations, I will take the legal route. You cannot mar our solid reputations, our sincere reputations our committed reputations just because you are presuming something. You cannot put out a baseless accusation that has no base, no fact, no truth, no reality and try and mar us and our reputations, it’s ridiculous."
